Subject: Bob Got All The Chicks, That Makes Him The Rock Star!!

...according to the general concept of what constitutes a rock star in the broadest sense.

Sure, the Dead were different, yeah, but, believe me, Bob got a LOT OF ATTENTION that made him feel VERY SPECIAL in a way no other band member did.
And it must have been exhausting sometimes.

I've never met a "Bob Hater" in all my 40 years as a Dead Head. Not even close. Met a lot of Brent haters, but when this talk of Weir not matching up crops up, it sounds to me like the critics needed to attend more shows.Too late now, so sorry!

One vignette comes to mind. It was the 1983 Richmond show. I was waiting outside in the crowd, and suddenly 30 or so gorgeous women materialized carry a superbly crafted oversized oil portrait of Bob Weir. Poor guy, that's what he had to face every show, yet, despite the trying circumstances, he consistently managed to play up to the level of the other musicians.

Subject: CLASSIC FM broadcast
This is a great interview with Bobby and Jerry during a pivotal time for the Dead and Deadheads. Thanks for sharing! Interesting about Egypt...Reckoning and Dead Set are so classic. I think this would have been termed the first official Space even though they played a lot of spacy stuff prior to this. I hate how the Bobby haters always take him out of context, to me he sounds humble. Get a grip haters, the truth is Bobby is a master musician and a great singer. You don't stand next to someone like Garcia for all those years without some of the magic rubbing off on you.

Subject: "I wanna say thanks..."
The part where the interviewer says "I want to thank you for writing Ripple..." Yeah, me to, Jer. Thanks a ton. That was the first song I'd ever heard - my intro to Grateful Dead 101. Still hooked today and forever more. You know our love will not fade away.

Subject: Jim Ladd's "Inner View"
I never knew that this existed until I just stumbled upon this entry this morning. I had been familiar with the show in the early eighties because Ladd had done some Pink Floyd episodes, including one with Roger Waters where they go through The Wall album song by song and discuss the album's concept.

One of the things I don't like about the format of this show is how the actual interview segments are so spliced up and then mixed in with the music. The editing, at least to me, feels a bit heavy handed, and I don't feel like this format works particularly well for an interview of Garcia and Weir. There are often interview segments mixed in mid-way through a song, so there is no easy way to skip through on this version.

That being said, Ladd does ask some pretty good questions, and often gets some candid and entertaining responses. A lot of it is stuff that has been covered in other popular interviews. Garcia talks a lot about the characters in his songs and how he empathizes with them. Ladd asks bluntly about the, then, recent departure of Keith and Donna. There is some fascinating insight onto how tunes were included in Dead Set, including the performance of Passenger and Little Red Rooster. Garcia details Weir pulling out Rooster cold, without rehearsal (on 8/19/1980). There is a fairly lengthy (for this interview anyway) segment on Egypt that lost me a bit in the details, but was still fun to listen to.

Not a bad listen. Would be great if Ladd could unearth the entire unedited interview one day.

Subject: Very enjoyable
It's not a "show" but it is fun. Interesting range of topics. Too bad the tracks are named for the songs played rather than discussion topics.

Subject: this was fun
This was a fun listen.

Though I gotta agree that Bob sounds full of himself when he complains about being a celebrity. Especially since Jerry is the real celeb. Bob hitched his wagon to a star.

Subject: Interesting Enough...
I Enjoyed listening to this. It might have been nice to have some live cuts accompanying, but i'll take what i can get!

Cool to hear that 15 year prospective on how Bob and Jerr feel about their music and all that comes with.

Weir sometimes sounds uneducated "Being a celebrity can be such a hassle sometimes", while Jerry generally has more grounded things to say.

Still very cool, glad its on the archive.
